Gawd, bureaucracy!

My bank has decided that I can no longer use the savings account for Standing Payments.
To set up a Current account, I need to thoroughly prove my identity, even though I've been a customer for 13 years!
Oh, good news: they can transfer all standing orders and such to the new account! ... No, wait, this is only if I come from *another* bank, not their own!
It's f***ing nuts.

I hate bureaucracy too but I reckon that their second requirement is at least half sensible.

You know that it's the same guy setting up the current account but how can they be sure? You wouldn't like it if they let an impersonator rearrange your finances.
